Services:  Resale Package
Upon request, the Association can provide a Resale Package that includes the disclosures and restrictions required by the the Maryland Homeowners Association Act (MHAA).  
 
The Resale Package contains required items such as the CC&Rs, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation.  It also contains other items such as the plats, conservation easement, architectural standards, minutes and financial statements.  Most of the items are available for download by the general public.  
 
A single Resale Package is provided as a courtesy to each homeowner.   It typically takes 1 week to prepare the Resale Package.  Subsequent packages for the same homeowner may incur a charge.  The Association presently does not charge a transfer fee.  To request a Resale Package, please email a request (see link below) including the property address and the requester contact information, i.e., name, organization (as applicable), address, email address and phone number.
